RTG Ram (a question)

How is RTG Ram used by Amiga applications ?
And how it differs from FAST ram ?

If, for example, in winuae settings, I set FAST ram to 128 Meg and RTG ram to, eg, 32 Meg, what's the benefit for amiga applications ?

RTG (ReTargetable Graphics) RAM is the RAM on a graphics card. If you add RTG RAM, you can install a graphics card driver (Picasso96) as if the emulated Amiga had a graphics card.

An application cannot directly access RTG memory and so it does not benefit at all. But of course all (system-friendly) applications benefit from the graphics acceleration and higher resolutions / more colors of a graphics card.

Nice style of writing and in depth explanation Thomas (5*)

Ever thought of doing the same for other features in Winuae. Not a guide on how to use winuae. Just a guide of features that are available in winuae, fully explained like your op above.
